AAOS Announces New Online Career Platform

One of AAOS’ core commitments to its members is to help them through each of their career stages, from resident through emeritus. As an extension of that promise, AAOS recently upgraded its career platform by partnering with MedGeo Ventures, a map-based career exploration platform that is purpose-built for healthcare professionals. The new, exclusive member benefit will launch in January and be called ACCELERATE by AAOS.

“In reimagining a new career center, it was important to find an innovative, intuitive platform that could provide AAOS members with a direct connection to potential employers that value the skills, experience, certifications, and training that our diverse members have to offer,” said AAOS President Kevin J. Bozic, MD, MBA, FAAOS. “MedGeo stepped up and met the challenge. With the launch of ACCELERATE by AAOS, we look forward to supporting our members who seek to identify new career opportunities that allow them to keep our nation in motion by providing the highest-quality musculoskeletal care.”

ACCELERATE by AAOS will offer AAOS members access to more data on more career opportunities than any other source. The platform seamlessly works with medical associations nationwide to integrate its innovative, map-based career exploration platform, modernize job centers, and support healthcare professionals at every step in the career search and selection process. Clients to date include the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and the American Association of Nurse Anesthesiology.

The platform also helps create a more members-only career search experience by mapping the entire specialty’s practice ecosystem. AAOS members can engage with any employer prior to applying for positions and tailor employer alerts and notifications to suit their needs and interests, eliminating unwanted job spam and reducing application friction.

In addition, the platform provides guidance from medical staffing experts on market trends, CVs, compensation expectations, and employer introductions. Learn more about the platform online at medgeoventures.com.

“We are very excited for the ACCELERATE career platform. It will allow AAOS to help members with the onerous challenges of finding the best career for them,” said Elizabeth Matzkin, MD, FAAOS, AAOS Membership Council chair. “Whether it is your first or last job search, ACCELERATE is for all specialties, types of practices, and geographic locations. We hope this will be a valuable, informative, and user-friendly platform for all AAOS members.”
